Dean's Musings

Welcome to the new academic year in the FAU Libraries.  For those of you who are new to FAU, we invite you to discover our spaces, our collections, and the services offered by our welcoming, professional faculty and staff at three different locations: Boca Raton, Jupiter, and Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute. 


Dean's Musings

As part of the Libraries’ efforts to help reduce the cost of the degree for students, specifically regarding the cost of textbooks and other required course materials, we are working to increase the number of printed textbooks available on Reserve.  Because we have no funds for purchasing textbooks, we have been pulling print copies of required textbooks out of our open stacks and placing them on Reserve. 


This October, three graduate students from across the country will be spending a month researching the Marvin and Sybil Weiner Spirit of America Collection, which is maintained and housed inside the S.E. Wimberly Library.


Data from the FAU Libraries’ student satisfaction survey conducted for three weeks in April 2018 revealed the average cost of course materials for FAU’s students, as well as the impact of those costs on student success.
